The APL Foundation is a not-for-profit, charitable organization which relies on the efforts of many volunteers to accomplish our mission. Contact us if you would like to help us to provide financial support to the Albany Public Library. We need a large number of event volunteers for our annual Literary Legends Gala, held the 3rd weekend of October. Other Foundation volunteer needs are posted to our Volunteer Match page.

If you are interested in volunteering directly with the Albany Public Library, visit their website and fill out their volunteer application. The library has great volunteer opportunities, including library aides, program assistants, tutors, and computer coaches, just to name a few options.

The Library and the APL Foundation host student groups, retired professionals, seniors, and others with a charitable spirit who are looking to give something back to their community. The APL Foundation also supervises intensive hands-on learning volunteer projects for 4, 6 or 12 weeks for college students and life-long learners.
